Indian Pharma – likely future trends
Years back, Isaac Asimov said, “Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.” While it may not be a matter of life and death for the Indian pharma industry, it certainly is the transition time and like any transition, it has its pain, as well as gain.

Success of such companies may spawn the launch of more new companies, which will have focused and differentiated product strategies
